My name is Rebecca Ehrke and I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and Somatic Experiencing Practitioner. With specialized training and experience in eating disorders, chemical dependency, depression, trauma and PTSD, I have treated adolescents, young adults and adults in a variety of outpatient, intensive outpatient and residential treatment settings. In my personal and professional experience, I have found that healing happens when deep, authentic connection is created in the quiet presence of a supportive relationship. My goal is to provide a healing environment that allows you to explore places within yourself that have been neglected for far too long.
I am a graduate of the Illinois School of Professional Psychology and obtained my doctorate in psychology in 2000. I have since worked in the eating disorder and chemical dependency programs at Alexian Behavioral Health Hospital outside of Chicago and was a primary therapist at Timberline Knolls in Lemont, Illinois. I have also worked in private practice for over 10 years. In 2007, I began a life-changing journey by attending the Somatic Experiencing Institute Training Program. Since then, I have completed the three year certification program and have assisted and provided sessions at trainings in Chicago and Kansas City. Currently, I coordinate the St. Louis Somatic Experiencing Training and have a full-time private practice in Kirkwood.
